Video: Time to root for the Colts

By ESPNBoston.com



AFC East blogger James Walker explains why the Patriots and their fans should now be rooting for the Indianapolis Colts.

"The Colts are the team that holds the key to New England potentially getting home-field advantage throughout the entire playoffs," says Walker.

"New England still needs to win out and have Houston lose at least one game, and that's where the Colts come in," he said.

Indy and AFC South rival Houston play each other twice in the next three weeks.
